Not gonna get into cable vs braid debate. I just wanted to let people know that I got some new cannon 400ft coated wire for my riggers and miked it at .023 in. I had been told that Cannon makes better wire but I always put scotty wire on before cause it was avail locally. The scotty wire miked at .034in. Same 150# test. 200lb powerpro, which seems to be the popular pick, is .030. Braid floats ss cable sinks so no debate imo about whihc one will get deeper with the same weight ball.
